Product Description

Is the XP Walking Brace right for me?

Ideal for those recovering from foot and/or ankle fractures and managing edema. Try our Brace Advisor for personalized product recommendations to meet your needs!

The XP Walker (Pneumatic) provides pneumatic support with Aircast full shell protection and is available in 5 sizes (pediatric, small, medium, large and X-large). Foam-filled aircells cushion the ankle for customized comfort and support. This support is effective in managing edema and fracture healing. This new design is made for a regular and X-wide width foot. Includes two socks and hand bulb. Can be used with Brake-Lok System.


  • Stable fracture of foot/ankle/lower leg


  • A semi-rigid shell to provide the protection formerly expected only from a cast
  • A rocker sole to reduce plantar pressures
  • Custom-inflated aircells to maintain total limb contact for stability
  • Pulsating, graduated compression to help reduce edema and promote callus formation

Key Benefits

  • Multi-aircell support for graduated, pulsating compression
  • Custom inflated aircells for individual fit and support
  • Lightweight design: rigid foot, flexible around calf for strength, fit and comfort
  • Full shell protection. Low profile for natural gait
  • Sealed-air cushioned heel


Do not overinflate aircells. Improper aircell inflation may cause significant skin irritation in patients with diabetic neuropathy. Reduce aircell compression with any visual skin changes or reported discomfort. Do not use this device on patients incapable of communicating physical discomfort. Like all lower extremity immobilizers, such as casts or braces, patients without sensation (i.e. post-op anesthesia, neuropathies, etc.) should be monitored frequently for "hot spots", skin irritation or wound management. Use caution when walking on slippery or wet surfaces to avoid injury. At high altitudes the aircells will expand beyond their optimal level. Adjust aircell pressure by tightening or loosening straps.

  • Harold Perl at 9/15/2016 7:03 PM
    • I have been wearing this boot for 10 weeks. The togue has now cracked along the upper foot portion and is hanging by a thread. Wher can I get/order a replacement for the plastic front cover?
    • As the brace is under warranty you can call our Customer Care team at 1-800-336-6569 to help get guidance on that replacement part.
  • Steve at 9/1/2016 10:00 AM
    • My doctor is going to put ne in a walking boot after I broke my fibula. I asked them if I could buy one instead of them supplying it because they are going to charge over 300.00 for it. They said yes, to buy a walking boot. Which walking boot would you recommend based on my injury.
    • This would be a great brace to use. However, this brace is used for a mild fracture. Be sure to check with your doctor for any suggestions or advice depending on the severity of your break.
  • Tb at 7/22/2016 9:17 AM
    • How much does this brace weigh ?
    • The medium XP walker weighs 3.22 lbs
  • Keri at 6/21/2016 11:47 AM
    • It the bottom of this considered slip resistant?
    • The Aircast XP Walking Brace has a rocker sole, but is not considered slip resistant. You may want to consider the Aircast Air Select Elite, https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airselect-elite which has a non-marking, skid resistant rubber tread.
  • Darlene at 4/29/2016 4:10 PM
    • I am a female who wears a size 8.5/9 shoe. I am only 5'3" so I have a short legs but have a wide calf. What size do you suggest? I'm a wearing it due to a post-op repair of a ankle dislocation/tibia and fibula fracture.
    • Medium
  • Lisa at 4/15/2016 7:55 PM
    • I use an iWalk 2.0 that my doctor had never heard of until I purchased it. He is happy it is working for me, however he put me in a boot, still non-weightbearing, with an airpump on the shin. When I put pressure on the airpump walking it inflates to the point of being unbearable, or completely deflates. I'd like to replace it with an Aircast as it appears their pumps are located on the side of the boot, NOT the front of the shin so I think it would work better with my iWalk. Can you confirm this is correct, the pumps are on the SIDE of the boot? Also is this boot similar in terms of support to the ProCare Xcel Trax Air Tall boot and appropriate for a lateral malleolus fracture? I feel like my doctor doesn't know a lot about medical devices so I haven't tried reaching out to him on this matter.
    • Correct the AirSelct walking boots have the air pump located on the upper side of the boot not in front. The boost will provide the same support as the XcelTrax boot
  • Jeffery at 4/6/2016 11:20 AM
  • Chris at 3/30/2016 5:19 PM
    • Is this good for a fracture on the mid tibia
    • This could be worn after getting out of a cast, but I reccommend asking a medical profession al before using for a mid tibia fracture
  • Cheyenne at 3/5/2016 3:06 PM
    • I'm worried that my aircast boot doesn't fit properly. My toes slightly hang out and the velcrow on the fabric doesn't close all the way over along with the plastic on the calf. I'm a size 5-6 depending on the shoe so I ordered a small. Is this normal or should I change it to a medium?
    • If your toes are hanging off the boot you should probably get the bigger size
  • Pete Jackson at 1/18/2016 3:14 PM
    • Can it be used on either foot
    • yes
  • Kate at 1/11/2016 4:30 PM
    • How is the brace-lok system utilized? I have a fp walker I may want to utilize with the brace lok, but want to make sure I know how to use the brace lok prior to purchasing! Thank you!
    • The Brace-lok system is to manage compliance. If you have someone that will not keep the boot on this will make it so that the boot canot be removed
  • Rich at 9/26/2015 2:30 PM
    • I have a plantar fascia tear and have just started wearing an xp walking boot.
      It is very painful under my heel when I walk because the inner sole is quite hard and there is no arch support. Is it ok to put my custom made orthotic in the boot or will this change the angle of my foot and not help the healing?
    • Rich
      Yes you can use your orthotics inside of the XP Walker.
  • Steph at 8/8/2015 11:22 AM
    • I wear a size 9.5 in women shoes. I also have a fairly wide calf area. Is the boot adjustable to accommodate a bigger calf ? Thanks
    • Steph
      The Aircast Air Selct Boots can be cut in the back of the shell to accomidate for bigger calves but the XP boot cannot. So you may want to look at the AirCast AirSelect Elite https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airselect-elite
  • Brandi A at 8/5/2015 9:16 AM
    • My daughter is suffering from severs disease. Which boot would be proper for her the XP or FP?
    • Brandi
      The XP Walker has a posterior air bladder that cann be inflated with air, this may be better for your daughter to take some of the sorness of the back of the heel away
  • Deidre hansen at 7/9/2015 3:42 PM
    • Heel will not stay down, rides up causing pressure on front of foot. Troublesome, not sure if air. Issue or straps, help please. Also, can boot be worn without the front plate cover? Thank you.
    • You may want to try adding more air, I would not recommend removing the front panel.
  • Karen at 4/23/2015 5:44 AM
    • I have a Jones' fracture and have to wear the Aircast XP, size medium for six weeks. My foot must sweat and now the bottom sole inside the boot is damp, wet and smells. Can I clean it? Remove it? Wash it? I change my socks everyday!
    • Karen
      you can clean the insole with soap and water, or or disinfecting wipes
  • KK at 4/8/2015 7:11 AM
    • I didn't see an indication to choose right or left foot... does this boot accommodate either foot?
    • All of our walking boots are Universal to left or right
  • Ken at 2/16/2015 2:16 AM
    • Due to diabetic neuropathy in my hands, it's very difficult to turn the 1-2-3 selector wheel. I squirted a little WD-40 into the wheel, but it didn't really help. What do you recommend?
    • Ken
      You may want to talk to your physician about getting a different boot since it is hard for you to adjust the aircels in your currant boot.
  • Frank T at 1/15/2015 12:00 PM
    • I have an XL air cast. While coming down a step the top strap ripped in the back and shot off of the cast. After a slight unexpected fall I find that the second strap is also torn in the back but has not let go yet. My problem is I need to replace the two top straps. Please let me know where I can get replacements or what I can use in place of the straps. Thanks
    • Frank
      Your straps can be replaced by calling DonJoy Direct 800-336-6569
  • Jason at 8/31/2014 1:55 PM
    • Hi, I need an aircast long enough to cover my toes. Will your largest size fit a size 18? Thanks.
    • Jason
      The XL length from heel to the edge is 12.5 "
  • Sam at 8/4/2014 8:48 AM
    • Using an Aircast AirSelect Elite... after a couple of days of fine walking I am now getting a loud squeaking noise no matter what surface I am walking on. I have tried tightening the ribbons as much as possible and pumping up the air cells more than usual so that it is extremely tight. I have also tried a full length foot pad which has not made the noise go away.

      I tried manipulating the boot without my foot inside and it does not make the noise so it must be something about the FIT which is causing the problem. I have a narrow foot. Not sure if doubling the sock will do anything but I am open to suggestions.

      Thank you
    • Sam
      The boot should not squeak when you walkin in it. Tqake it back to where you received it and ask them to exchange it for another.
  • Chad at 6/8/2014 6:37 PM
    • Broken left calcaneous, 4 scews inserted 5/9/14. Instructions to wear Aircast xp for 4 weeks starting 6/5/14, except for bathing, and airing out for 5 minutes 3-5 minutes per day. Non Weight Bearing. Elevate foot 12+ hours per day.

      Problems: 1) foot becomes very hot with sock,2) hard plastic rubs on inside ankle and pressure becomes painful if I put enough air to eliminate the rubbing.

      1) heat - if I am just lying in bed, is there a problem with removing the front plastic cover to allow more cooling?
      2) if I pump enough air to eliminate the rub, but keep the straps loose enough to reduce overall pressure, does that make sense?
    • Chad
      1. You do not have to wear that sock you can wear one that is cooler or no sock at all. yes you can take off the front panell while elvating and lying in bed.
      2. Yes you can loosen the straps to release some pressure on the area that is rubbing
  • Carol at 5/14/2014 8:53 PM
    • Could you tell me the product dimensions of the Aircast XP Walking Brace? and its weight?
    • Carol
      Here are the dimentions to a medium XP Walker:

      Weight: 3.22lbs
      Height: 16.25"
      Length of sole(heel to toe): 10.4"
      Depth of Sole(Bottom to insole): 1.7"
      Calf Width: 5"
  • Cynthia at 4/14/2014 6:24 AM
    • Which FP Aircast Walking brace is better for a tibia/ankle fracture. The names are the same for both, which is very very confusing!!!
    • Both are for that injury
  • Cynthia at 4/14/2014 6:03 AM
    • Hi. I have fractured my tibia and hope to get an XP or FP - instead of a hard cast and am seeing the ortho doc this AM. I wear a size 8 shoe, and my calf is 15" around. Do I go with a small or medium? How tall is the XP vs. the FP and why would you use one or the other for an ankle fracture?
    • I would go with the medium because of the calf width. The XP walker has 4 aircells to inflate and the FP only has 2
  • Lexi at 2/10/2014 5:46 PM
    • Can the boot work if you have a stress fracture in the shin? Thanks!!
    • Lexi
      You should check with you physician to see if this is what they would reccomend, but yes the boot has been used for tibia stress fractures
  • Jai at 1/8/2014 3:03 AM
    • I purchased XP walker 6 months back but now when i went for review it was found that bone is getting down & i think it has become loosen compared to first month so full pressure fell on that foot,
      please guide me how to adjust it after every month usually it will become looser after few days so should i increase the air level in four valves r else any other way?
    • Jai
      If you need to tighten the boot, you need to increase air pressure or tighten the straps. You may have been swollen when you recieved the boot origionally and now the swelling is decresing so the boot is not as tight.
  • Manuel at 1/7/2014 4:51 PM
    • If I am a 10.5 men shoes would it be best to buy the large walking boot or stick to the medium size walking boot and have my toes touch the end?
    • Go with the large just to make sure your toes don't hang off of the edge of the boot
  • Grayson at 11/28/2013 5:58 PM
    • Can it be worn for a broken/fractured big toe?
    • Grayson
      Yes this can be worn for a broken toe
  • Dawn at 11/8/2013 11:26 PM
    • I am a woman's size 8. Am I better to go with a size small or medium?
    • Dawn
      You should be able to fit into a small, but if you have a lot of swelling I would go ahead and get the medium. Thanks for contacting product support
  • Justin at 11/1/2013 11:14 AM
    • What type of material is the outer plastic shell made out of?
    • Justin
      Its a plastic made of polyurothene. It is latex free
  • Ernesto at 10/15/2013 1:14 PM
    • Can the sole be taken out and washed
    • The padding can be removed and wash it with a soapy wash cloth. Be sure to rinse it well and air dry completely. Thank you for your question.
  • Simon at 8/31/2013 12:42 AM
    • I have been using the XP for 10 days and now notice the front slips upwards after walking for a few minutes. Can you advise on how to correct this please.
    • You could have to much air in the back bladder, it may not be tight enough with your straps, it could be not enough air in the the side bladders or the front cover. It could also be that the boot is too big for your foot.
  • Alan Busch Sr at 7/26/2013 6:18 AM
    • I have been using my brace for most of 14 months. The front piece is almost cracked all of the way across at the ankle. Can I get a replacement part? It is the XP Walker Large 01P-L If I can get one could you please tell me how to get it. Thanks
    • Hello,

      Please call Customer Care to order your replacement part 1-800-336-6569.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • Yvette at 5/22/2013 5:39 AM
    • My doctor has told me to wear the boot day and night. Do I need to deflate it when i'm in bed?
    • Yvette,
      The are is to help secure the foot into the boot, if it is too tight you can loosen it some when you are non weight bearing.
  • gary g at 11/14/2012 5:40 AM
    • I have a size 12 shoe. They gave me a size large for planter faciitis. They said I should/could wear my orthodic with the brace. But when I do so the end of my toes hang over the boot, That is a bit uncomfortable. Do I need a karger size or not wear the orthodic?

    • Hello, Gary -

      You are fitted in the correct size walking brace. The size range should also allow for a little bit of space (Large ranges up to a standard size 13). We suggest that you speak with the person who recommended use of your orthotic with the boot in regards to fit of the orthotic in the boot.

      Thanks and have a great day!
  • Dawgmark at 8/1/2012 8:30 PM
    • How tall is the medium cast. I have short legs and want to make sure the top of the cast will not bind on the back of my knee. Also is the measurement from the inside of the cast or bottom of the sole up?
    • 11 inches from inside the boot sole to the top of the foam above the plastic top.
  • Sheila h at 7/22/2012 3:53 PM
    • How do I inflate the boot?
    • Sheila,
      Thank you for contacting DJO Global. Your boot should have come with a bulb like pump. One end says inflate, the other says deflate. You want to put the inflate end into the air stem and pump until the boot feel secure but comfortable.
  • Richard Y at 6/6/2012 2:32 PM
  • connie at 5/11/2012 3:06 PM
    • Hi...can the foam padding that goes behind knee be ordered? I need a replacement.

      thanks, connie
    • Yes that part is replaceble. Here are the part numbers depending on what size you need:

      Call Customer Care at 800-553-6019
  • jane at 3/21/2012 12:00 PM
    • Why is this boot so wide across the toes?
      I don't think I'm clumbsier than normal but because of the design I hit the edge on furniture etc jarring my already sore ankle
      I think it would be better rounded at edges
    • It is made wide to accommodate swelling and dressings after surgery.
  • Ryan at 3/21/2012 10:32 AM
    • I Fractured my left fibula 4 days ago, they have given me the aircast boot. I have been getting pins and needles in my toes and my toes are feeling really Hot, when I am sleeping at nights. can i Take the boot off when i sleep at night?
    • The boot may be too tight and that's why you need to loosen the straps or deflate the air cells a bit. As far as if you can take it off at night, that is up to your physician.
  • Jessie at 11/30/2011 1:12 PM
    • I have my aircast XP from breaking my right foot 4 years ago, now I've broken my left. I put my aircast on and it just doesn't look right or track normal...can you wear the aircast XP on either foot or does it specify right/left?
    • The XP can be worn on either foot, depending on how long you wore the original XP the foot tread maybe worn to the Right foot walking pattern, if this is the case, unfortunately you will have to purchase a different walker, due to the tread cannot be replaced.
  • Beverly at 11/16/2011 9:34 AM
    • One of the valves broke and I was wondering if it is possible to replace this valve (the spot where the air pump fits in to inflate the boot)
      If yes, how much is a replacement valve and is it hard to do??
      Thanks so much!
    • Unfortunately these pieces cannot be replaced. If you have had your boot for less than 6 months customer care can do a quality replacement on it and get you a new one out. Please contact customer care for replacement boot.
  • Linda at 10/3/2011 10:57 PM
    • Is there any latex in the boot or the long sock?
    • No, there is not latex in either one of those products.
  • Susan White at 8/6/2011 11:05 AM
    • What is difference between the XP and <a href="/aircast-fp-walking-brace">FP boots</a> besides price?
    • The XP boot has a liner that is entirely pneumatic, as well as the aircells around the ankles. The FP just has the aircells around the ankles, the liner is foam. The XP also comes with a long sock, the FP does not.
  • Amy at 4/27/2011 1:11 PM
    • How do you deflate the brace? When I insert the hand bulb on the deflate side and pump, nothing happens.
    • Hi Amy,
      The valve can be very rigid and you will have to apply a good amount of force into the valve while you pump to make it work. I hope this helps.

  • Gary at 3/30/2011 4:57 PM
    • How do I get it to deflate, the instructions were not given to me in the doctor's office . Its very hard to push it in.
    • Duplicate Question, response has already been sent.
  • Gary at 3/30/2011 4:57 PM
    • How do I get it to deflate, the instructions were not given to me in the doctor's office . Its very hard to push it in.
    • Hey Gary,
      To deflate the Aircast XP Walking Brace you will use the hand pump they gave you. First, find the end of the hand pump that says deflate, then insert it into the vavle. Keeping pressure into the valve, begin pumping. You are now pumping air from the aircell to the outside air. The hardest part is keeping the pump pressed into the vavle. this is very important because if you do not keep the pump pressed into the valve, the valve will close. I hope this helps.

  • Becky at 3/22/2011 12:45 PM
    • If the boot is too tight, will it bruise the leg/ankle/foot ?
    • It's possible if you were to inflate it too much, you could possibly bruise the leg/foot. Just put enough air in the boot so that the foot doesn't slide around, and it feels secure. You don't need any more than that.
  • Sheila Bueno at 12/3/2010 5:07 PM
    • Will this cast fit a women's size 5 foot?
    • Hello,

      The pediatric size will accommodate a womens shoe size of 5 and below. The small size will accommodate the womens shoe size of 5-8.
  • Megan at 8/18/2010 10:37 AM
    • How tall is the small size? I have a fairly short calf and want to be sure this model won't hit my knee.

    • From the base of the heel to the top of the brace it is 14 1/4in tall.
  • Tanya at 8/5/2010 11:31 AM
    • What is the maximum calf width allowed for a small boot?
    • Hello Tanya!

      The maximum calf width allowed for a Aircast XP Walking Brace size small boot is 12 inches.
  • Diane at 7/17/2010 8:20 AM
    • How much does this boot weigh?
    • Hello Diane,

      The Aircast XP Walking Brace weighs in at 2.7 pounds.
  • Ginny Wilke at 7/11/2010 1:12 PM
    • I lost my directions for which area is to be inflated first.
      Could you send me the correct order on how to inflate the brace properly?
    • The inner liner should be numbered as follows

      FRONT: 1
      RIGHT: 2
      LEFT: 2
      BACK: 3

      Inflate the front first then inflate the right, then left, then inflate the back last.
  • Kelly at 7/5/2010 7:06 AM
    • Is there a weight limit to the boot? My son is 6'2", shoe size 12, weight 230...should a size large be ok? Thanks!
    • Max weight is 250, and a large is his correct size.
  • Dave C at 6/6/2010 3:15 PM
    • Will water hurt these braces? I have two for my daughter and I'm wondering if she can go in the pool/ocean...separate from any issues regarding physically whether she is up to that.
    • These are not recommended for use in water. The boots are heavy when wet and when submerged can cause the risk of drowning.
  • Terence B Burnett at 4/30/2010 6:53 AM
  • Richard at 4/10/2010 3:07 PM
    • What is the difference between the XP walking brace and the XP diabetic walker system? The exterior appears to be the same.
    • Our Aircast XP Diabetic Walker incorporates a rocker sole with our dual-laminate insole designed with the Impax Grid technology. This insole allows for portions of the grid to be pushed out so that it alleviates pressure around diabetic ulcers on the bottom on the feet. It also comes with a pressure gauge hand bulb to inflate the aircells according to your prescription, as well as a lighter more sheer sock for patient comfort. The XP Walker has a standard laminate insole and hand bulb. The socks that come with the XP Walker are of a thicker cotton material than the XP Diabetic Walker System. Other than that they both have the Duplex aircells that provide intermittent pneumatic compression for edema reduction as well as callus formation.
  • Alison at 4/6/2010 3:59 PM
    • What's the difference between this walking brace and the <a href="/aircast-fp-walking-brace">Aircast FP Walking Brace</a>?
    • The Aircast XP Walking Brace (extra pneumatic) differs from the Aircast FP Walking Brace (foam pneumatic) due to the larger anterior panel that contains an additional aircell.

      Aside from that difference the braces are identical and can treat or address the following indications:

      Stable fracture of foot/ankle/lower leg
      Severe ankle sprain (grade III)
      Post-op immobilization
